The Singapore-based private hotel owner and operator, Naumi Hotels, has announced the purchase of two CQ Hotels Wellington properties in a prime location in Wellington, New Zealand.
This announcement follows the official launch of the group’s brand-new Auckland property, Naumi Auckland Airport, that took place on 1 February after a multi-million-dollar renovation program.
Handover of both properties is expected to be completed by late 2018, adding another 178 rooms to Naumi Hotel’s growing presence.
“With the rise in experiential travel, New Zealand is definitely a hot favourite with millennial travellers and we see a lot of potential in Wellington for something new and vibrant and believe Naumi is the right fit,” Naumi Hotels Australia and New Zealand chief executive officer Gaurang Jhunjhnuwala said.
The first hotel, located in the heart of Wellington’s lively Cuba Street, is an iconic heritage building with 115 modern rooms and a spacious ground level floor with retail units and a restaurant.
The second hotel, also a charming property on the same street, features all-suite rooms with floor to ceiling windows and kitchen facilities in all rooms. This property currently offers a state of the art conference and function centre, an indoor heated swimming pool, gym and multiple food and beverage options.
Wellington’s “coolest street”, Cuba Street is brimming with art galleries, quirky cafes, acclaimed restaurants and vintage boutiques. The area, a famous slice of bohemia packed with culinary and creative flavour, is a hub for all visitors to New Zealand’s capital city.
